M-1 Global prospects

From the org that brought Andrei Arlovski (former UFC HW champ), Alexander Shlemenko (Bellator MW GP winner), Amar Suloev and Andrei Semenov (UFC and Pride veterans)

Magomed Shikshabekov- on Sherdog fight finder his pro record stands at 7-0, but according to some sources it is over 10-0. he is 170lbs 25 year old from Russia, all his wins coming in the first round. He was expected to make his Strikeforce debut, but was pulled out due to visa issues.

Guram Gugenishvilli- undefeated 8-0 23 year old from Georgia, he has 7 submissions all in round 1. he won his first 4 fights by RNC, and 6 out of his 8 wins are done by that move.

Arthur Guseinov- middleweight from Dagestan, was undefeated 7-0 with 6 finishes in the 1st round until his last fight versus another prospect Islan Bisaev (who is 9-1 himself). His last 4 wins came via kick in round 1, last 3 by head kick (Zaromskis is not that special). He holds a win over another prospect “Caucasian Wolf”

“Caucasian Wolf” Magomed Sultanakhmedov 14-4 205lbs 26 year old Muay Thai fighter from Dagestan, won his last 5 fights by KO and holds a victory over Pavel Kusch

Rasual Magomedov- undefeated 205lbs 6-0 fighter out of Dagestan, defeated tough Shamil Tinagadjiev (who holds a 6-2 record)

Mairbek “Beckan” Taisumov- he holds a 12-2 record 22 year old 155lbs out of Chechen Republic in Russia. All his wins came by finish. He slipped twice in his career and is yet to be tested.

Pavel Kusch 185lbs 7-1 fighter from Ukraine, won all his fights by submission, 6 of them in the 1st round, and 3 in a row via heel hook. His sole defeat came at the hands of the Caucasian Wolf.

“Slava” Vasilevski- 8-1 205 lbs fighter from Russia, with a sole loss to Daniel Tabera by decision in his second fight. He finished 7 of his opponents.

“Tiger” Alexander Sarnavskiy- undefeated 10-0 155lbs fighter out of Russia, and hes only 21. 7 of his fights were finished in the first round. His last win was a split decision versus Karen Grigoryan

Yuri Ivlev- 14-5 155 lbs fighter from Russia. He was knocked out in his last loss by Magomed Araphkanov who only had 1 fight to date in 2008, but is yet to see how good he is. Since then Ivlev won 6 fights in a row 5 by TKO including a win over a prospect Ivan Jorge

There are also up and comers with 4 or less fights on their record, but it is too early to determine where they stand.

no, M-1 Global has the right to all those figters.
these prospects will only compete on other cards via co-promotion. SF is willing to co-promote and they may appear on those cards. otherwise they cannot compete in orgs like UFC or any of the like. at least thats what Finklestein said.

Magomed is a beast, and Tiger is supposed to be pretty decent, otherwise, most of those guys are just the result of favourable matchmaking.

Well if they want to continue getting exposure over here with Strikeforce they need to actually send some more fighters over here cause Fedor doesn't go as far as he used to go, so to speak!

"Slava" Vasilevski is now 9-1 after a win over Tinagadjiev.

my top pick would be Shikshabekov by far, followed by Gugenishvilli and Sarnavskiy, although Guseinov and Kusch are getting closer to my favorites. although all these fighters are young and i would like to see how they all fare in the ufc.
